The state of Nebraska, the U.S. and the world need qualified engineers and leaders. As part of the college’s vision to improve the lives of every Nebraskan and solve problems of global importance, the Complete Engineer® is a commitment to developing every student, staff member and faculty member in technical, professional and personal dimensions. We strive to enable every individual in the college to become the best version of themselves, supporting our values of Community, Impact and Inclusion.

Technical knowledge is the foundation of our education, empowering us to provide solutions to current and emerging challenges. Determining effective solutions relies on an ongoing choice to develop skills that enhance professional, personal and interpersonal dimensions. Along with the technical foundation, the Complete Engineer® provides opportunities for the Nebraska Engineering community to focus on six essential non-technical core competencies.
